With a stalker on the loose and the town of Siglufjörður in quarantine, a child goes missing, as Icelandic police officer Ari Thór Arason investigates a cold case of a mysterious death on an isolated fjord…

‘Bitingly contemporary in setting and tone’ Express
‘A modern take on an Agatha Christie-style mystery, as twisty as any slalom…’ Ian Rankin
1955.Two young couples move to the uninhabited, isolated fjord of Hedinsfjörður. Their stay ends abruptly when one of the women meets her death in mysterious circumstances. The case is never solved. Fifty years later an old photograph comes to light, and it becomes clear that the couples may not have been alone on the fjord after all…
In nearby Siglufjörður, young policeman Ari Thór tries to piece together what really happened that fateful night, in a town where no one wants to know, where secrets are a way of life. He’s assisted by Ísrún, a news reporter in Reykjavik, who is investigating an increasingly chilling case of her own. Things take a sinister turn when a child goes missing in broad daylight. With a stalker on the loose, and the town of Siglufjörður in quarantine, the past might just come back to haunt them.
Haunting, frightening and complex, Rupture is a dark and atmospheric thriller from one of Iceland’s foremost crime writers.
‘Traditional and beautifully finessed… morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons’ Independent
‘Jonasson’s books have breathed new life into Nordic noir’ Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express
'British aficionados of Nordic Noir are familiar with two excellent Icelandic writers, Arnaldur Indridason and Yrsa Sigurdardottir. Here’s a third: Ragnar Jónasson … the darkness and cold are palpable’ Marcel Berlins, Times
‘A distinctive blend of Nordic Noir and Golden Age detective fiction … economical and evocative prose, as well as some masterful prestidigitation’ Laura Wilson, Guardian
‘A classic crime story seen through a uniquely Icelandic lens … first rate and highly recommended’ Lee Child
‘Chilling, poetic beauty… a must read!’ Peter James
‘History and time are essential to the storyline and echo with striking vibrancy, ensuring ‘Rupture’ just throbs with dramatic intensity and is a riveting read’ LoveReading
Rupture is a clever, complex and haunting thriller, a fascinating study of a an already isolated community cut off from the world by a deadly illness, living in fear of both disease and an unknown stalker, and with two young people ploughing a furrow through events of the past, determined to seek out the truth. It’s a fascinating scenario and one that Jónasson exploits through three separate story strands, each slowly weaving together as the mystery unfolds and moves inexorably to a conclusion that is both unexpected and gripping’ Lancashire Post
RUPTURE by Ragnar Jonasson is one of those rare beasts: a convoluted plot that never once becomes complicated or unwieldy. Taking his cue from greats like Agatha Christie, Jonasson weaves a story that is full of intrigue, keeping us on our toes throughout, bringing us towards a satisfying denouement that is full of juicy — not to mention tragic — revelations’ Lucy Hay
‘A tense and convincing thriller; Jónasson is a welcome addition to the roster of Scandi authors…’ Susan Moody
